I’m giving these as gifts… (I just let out a big sigh) as well, I mean it’s hard to eat all of these…

I mean I top these off this an eggnog brown butter glaze. Be still my heart. Is it possible that brown butter stole my heart?

I guess it is I am lacking in the relationship department lately… okay always. ( I just sighed again for different reasons…)

Considering how much I cook and bake you would think I could land a man but I guess not…

Well okay I can but usually they’re bums full and part-time bums at that…

Call me Scrooge! actually don’t I’m cuter than that.


Eggnog Chocolate Chip Bread with Brown Butter Eggnog Glaze

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 1/8 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup eggnog
2/3 cup chocolate chips tossed in 2 teaspoons of flour

1/4 cup brown butter
1/2-3/4 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons eggnog

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×5 loaf pan and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, powder, nutmeg and salt until combined. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk cooled butter with sugar until smooth. Add in vanilla extract, mixing until combined, then whisk in each egg one at a time until totally combined. Add half of the flour mixture, stirring with a large spoon, then stir in the eggnog until smooth. Add remaining dry ingredients and stir until just combined and smooth. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour in the greased loaf pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes, until top is golden and cake is just set. Let cool completely, then cover in glaze.

To make glaze, whisk together brown butter, sugar and eggnog, stirring well for 1-2 full minutes until combined. If it still doesn’t appear glaze-like, add in eggnog 1/2 tablespoon at a time and mix again. Don’t worry if it becomes too liquidy – just add a tiny bit of powdered sugar until you get the desired consistency. Spoon glaze on bread then serve.


this is not overly eggnog-y. The flavor is there but somewhat minimal. Chances are if you do not like eggnog, you will probably still enjoy this bread!
